Backwoods Heathens return to Wall Street in Murfreesboro, one of our favorite venues, and with South Texas touring band
About Backwoods Heathens:
This metal powerhouse from Middle Tennessee incorporates their punk, outlaw country, blues, and rock influences into their everchanging, but always intense, driving, progressive metal sound. They are known for their fun, energetic live shows, hard work ethic, and their "down to earth", and "open to network with" approach. Many members have come and gone but all have left their own influence and contributed to the band that Backwoods Heathens is today.
Backwoods Heathens are currently in the studio
recording their first EP which is scheduled to be released in 2014 and gearing up for their 2014 tour dates.
About Barnyard Stompers:
Outlaw Garage Country from South Texas!! Check out www.barnyardstompers.com or http://www.reverbnation.com/rpk/barnyardstompers for show dates!
Casey Miller and Megan Wise are the power duo known as Barnyard Stompers. The two have collectively played in many legendary roots music outfits including The Hillbilly Hellcats and The Bop Kings. They have teamed together in order to combine several generations of Outlaw Country, Texas Stomp, Blues, Rockabilly and Dark Hillbilly, creating a new sub-genre known as Backwoods Twang. Barnyard Stompers definitely have a style all their own; however, they hold true to the stylings of the pioneers of roots music such as Johnny Cash, Tex Ritter, Bukka White, Blind Willie McTell, Bill Monroe, Roy Rogers, Waylon Jennings, Carl Perkins, Hank Williams and more recent artists like Scott H. Biram, Flat Duo Jets, Black Keys, Dropkick Murphys and Junior Brown.
In less than a year, Barnyard Stompers have released a seventeen track debut CD, The Way-Gone, Wild and Rockin' Sounds of Barnyard Stompers as well as their new release, Outlaws with Chainsaws, and have played well over two hundred shows. The duo has performed in front of fans in over 20 states. The Stompers will be touring Europe in October and November of 2013.
Casey Miller plays a mean guitar and harmonica as he sings in the traditional stylings of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley and Robert Johnson. Never taking himself too seriously, his kazoo skills always stir up a laugh from fans. Megan Wise plays all things percussive and produces a big, full sound as she pounds the skins in her very own style that must be heard and seen. Her vocal style is reminescent of Kitty Wells and she can also swing a steady rhythm on acoustic guitar. Folks say that Barnyard Stompers sound like a full live band to which they reply, "We ARE a full band." The power duo certainly hold their own as they run circles around most four or five piece bands. Those who are into true rocking, down-home, roots music owe it to yourselves to check out Barnyard Stompers.
"That stain on the lead singer’s overalls could be barbecue sauce, but it’s probably blood. Such is the raw outlaw-garage-country-psychobilly-punk appeal of Barnyard Stompers, the Denver-based ne’er-do-well duo that’s going to burn down Bill’s Place in a free, early evening Sunday show. These guys have an album called “Outlaws and Chainsaws,” after all. Oh, you know what? That’s barbecue sauce AND blood."
- Yakima Herald Republic (6/27/13)
"BUY THIS ALBUM!! Straight-up hell-raisin', barn-burnin', cow-punkin’, hillbilly rock and rollin' from the power duo of Casey Miller and Go Go Wise… There’s even a nod to “Mad” Maynard Horlick in there somewhere."
—Hepkat of The Rock and Roll Jamboree Radio Show
"You know it has been a long time since I have found a band that I enjoy listening to on repeat… Barnyard Stompers is one of those bands. Members are Megan Go-Go Wise and Casey Miller. The talent with these two is simply amazing. As stated in “Got me a Trailer” this album will, ‘blow your f’n doors off!’”
